FML - The follow-up

Today, as a medical student working in a hospital, I asked a patient if he had any questions for me or his physician. His only question: whether or not my breasts are real. FML

falafalo Say more :
the_true_batman – I may not be a doctor, but that does not make the comments that reference female doctors irrelevant. Female medical students and female doctors face many of the same issues when working in the hospital. A couple of letters behind your name and a longer white coat don’t erase sexism. If you can’t make the mental leap to connect female medical students and female doctors as women in health care, then perhaps is it you that needs to work on your critical THINKING skills. DocBastard and sjs1220 - Thank you for the support.

Haha I can visualize homer Simpson doing something like that... Nurse: any questions? Homer: omg look at those... No! Don't stare! Better say something, she's looking at you! But they're so... No! C'mon c'mon give me something to work with... Alright, whatever you say, don't ask if those boobs are real. Don't ask! Omg why are her lips moving? I haven't thought about anything! Nurse: mr Simpson...? Homer out loud: are those boobs real? Homer head voice: D'OH!

It doesn't matter if she's a doctor or not, it's still sexist bullshit. And when someone reduces you to a body part like that, it's not a fucking compliment, it's a continuation of the objectification of women that keeps them down.

Thanks once again to 75, 89, 103, and enugmax2514! Welcome back bro haven't seen you in ages! Where you been? Like your comments too! And yeah 104, it's sad the post got thumbed down... Maybe by male chauvinist pigs? Whats wrong with female doctors?

#93 Wow! Someone has a real poor outlook on life. Sorry about your disposition. If a female looks at a well built male, and says, "Hey there, I like your muscles," does that make her a Sexist Bitch? Is that a Body Part Reduction? Don't be such a douche. And yes it does matter of she is a Doctor or not. Most people would not talk to a Doctor that way. My Doctor is female and I wouldn't dare show such disrespect to her. Most people, after learning that the person is a student, tend to be more 'ignorant' and try to fluster them or give them a learning experience, so to speak. I'm sure you could have understood all this before making your comment if you would have just pulled your head out first, then use it. (and don't ask "pulled from where?") As many commenters have said: "Think before you comment." :)

I love how a bunch of people in this thread are getting their panties in a bunch. It's a simple "yes or no" question and if it made OP that uncomfortable then she could've just walked out! It's called maturity people, as most of you are only showing immaturity by calling out "sexism" or she needs to have revenge over something so insignificant as this. Fucks sake people, get a grip.

Perhaps #116, you could go back and read what I wrote instead of what you think I wrote. Didn't state nor imply that male muscles were the same as female breasts, so you sound like a real airhead for your comment. Furthermore, female breasts are for feeding babies. Looks you have been voted to be the narrow minded one. Easy fix for you though, just keep your dumbass comments to yourself and all will be fine. :)

What's with #115/116? Why do these people have to be such asses? Your comments don't reflect on what the Coffee bean guy even said. I agree with him, "Don't be a Douche."

Me when I run. Or when my bra straps always fall off my shoulders. Or when my bra wire breaks. Sometimes I think life would just be easier with no boobies (: maybe..

Now, now... Let all of our comments be of proportion abreast to our age and maturity since we are breast known for the words we speak. Every politician knows this as many have fallen to the booby traps set by the media. So beware because fml is like politics, if they hate what they see, they vote you down! Let's take a break and munch on some tit-bits eh? And when we get back, I'm going to pretend I never saw this, just to make a clean breast of things... And critics, calm your tits

Oh sorry little red, didn't read your profile pic before I commented... And hey you're awesome too! All I will tell you is that I'm of the same age as you, and the birth date is really close too! High five sistah!

That's not true at all. I work with a few male nurses and patients assume they're doctors (even though they're wearing scrubs just like the rest of us - unlike the doctors). I've never seen a patient who doesn't take male nurses seriously.

I take female doctors seriously. At times, maybe more than male doctors since they may have to work harder and face more discrimination to follow the profession they want.

I hope you don't work in the ER, seeing as someone with such awful English probably wouldn't be a great doctor. Also, your username containing the name "nickelback" is enough to make me feel very ill.
